Are We Losing Religion? with Special Guest David Zahl

Core Christianity

Christian talk radio with Pastor Adriel Sanchez and Bill Maier

December 6, 2019

Dr. Michael Horton and Adriel Sanchez answer caller questions. Key questions answered in today's show: 1. The statistics tell us that it seems like the younger you go in our culture, the less people want to identify with any particular religion, much less Christianity. Yet, you have written seculosity arguing that actually we’re very religious. What led you to write this book and where do you think these numbers don't tell the whole story? 2. You write, “We want to feel good about ourselves, and so we edit our personalities to maximize the approval of others. Or we exaggerate our hardships to make ourselves seem more heroic or others more villainous.” You call this self-justification. Can you help our audience understand self-justification and how this is connected to a religious impulse? 3. How does a desire to be righteous lead to alienation among people? 4. Tell me how we craving self-justification in parenting? 5. You describe our culture as one where busyness has become a virtue. Can you explain this? 6. You describe performancism as “the assumption, usually unspoken, that there is no distinction between what we do and who we are.” You write, “Your resumé isn’t a part of your identify; it is your identity. What makes you lovable, indeed what makes your life worth living, is your performance.” This is a problem you point out. Why is this a problem?
